It’s snowing in Dallas, Texas today! To our Northern friends, this snow was beautiful, yet brief. As we were running errands today and the beautiful, big, fluffy snowflakes were falling, we realized why Southerners love snow. What Southerners know of snow is glorious, large flakes that float through the air and rest on your shoulders briefly and then disappear into a mini puddle. What isn’t there to like about that kind of snow? There is no hassle, no stress, no change to your normal routines.
We had planned to share a different cocktail with you to start your 2021 off on the right foot, but our research and development team, a.k.a. Craig, did not make sure we had the appropriate supplies on hand. Fate saved us with the snow, which found us more in the mood for a comforting cup of hot cocoa instead.
We shared three great hot chocolate recipes with you in the past during the 3 Hot Chocolates with a Twist post. Today we are sharing a Fernet Hot Chocolate. This drink is simple as pie and can be made on the spot. Choose your favorite hot cocoa recipe. (We made ours with cocoa from the Kerig.) Then add an ounce of fernet. Top off with marshmallows or whipped cream, and sprinkle some shaved chocolate. Yumm-o! Rhonda was supposed to share hers with Craig and accidentally drank the whole mug! Oops!
If you are viewing this post via email, make sure to visit us at www.theblindpig.blog for a complete recipe for Fernet Hot Chocolate.
Grab that bottle of Fernet out of the cabinet, pour some in your hot chocolate, light the fireplace and relax with a good book. I think we all need to pamper ourselves a bit after this week, don’t you?
